The Greek word mystikós derived in Latin mystĭcus, which arrived in Spanish as mystical . The term has several uses according to context .
The mystical is that linked to the divine or at spiritual . In this sense, the concept results opposite to the earthly or the rational . For example: “While we were spending the night on the mountain I had a mystical experience”, "My grandfather says he lived several mystical events throughout his life", "Sit down and listen carefully, that I have something important to tell you: there was a mystical event in this house yesterday ...".
Mystical beliefs, therefore, relate to the supernatural and are associated with faith. A person who, when he is diagnosed with a disease, begins to pray to heal, is appealing to the mystical. This individual believes that, by communicating mentally with God or going to church, an organic transformation will occur that will allow him to leave behind the inconvenience of health. For science, however, the possibility of healing is not given by the mystical, but by the work of a doctor with academic studies and experience in practice. Of course, the mystic and the scientific can live together: as long as the patient continues to go to the doctor, praying will not harm him.
The idea Mystic, on the other hand, can be used to refer to a coastal boat of two or three sticks that presents Latin type candles. These boats were used in the area of Mediterranean .
When equipped with cannons, the mystics were employed as warships or as coastguards. These ships they were habitual on the coast of Catalonia .
